Transition - Enticing food :(
I am struggling with one of my cat who is kibble junky in the passed, he is 14 months now. Since the day I got him (2 months old) he been eating Kibble from Iam to RC to Evo to Acana and now i am still in the progress of 'weaning' him from the kibble. He started to have raw about 4 weeks ago, still he need to have entice canned food to help him eat the raw, i need to mix 95% of raw with 3-5% of canned tuna(the lower quality as i can get, if not, that doesnt work). I been trying to feed 100% raw without the topping, however, he will just sniff it and go off OR have 1 piece of chunk, then walk off. I even forcefully doing it (2 weeks) without the canned tuna, he will just eat 1 piece of chuck at a time or eat nothing and causing his skin and coat started have problem. He lick himself till have many bald spot, i doubt that is the stress or lack of certain nutrition that been affecting his emotion or body. From then, i decided to put in canned tuna that to entice him to eat the proper potion i offer him. (eating better then no eating enough at all) Wild salmon oil does not make any effect on him.
My concern is will that canned tuna in long run causing anything bad on my cat? Any ideal to suggest me how to wean him off completely from the canned tuna? cut from 5%, 4% , 3%.... ? he stop eating!
I been feeding him 3-4 times a day in this period of time, he CLEAN the plate with the Miracle Topping of Canned Tuna!!
